In the cold winters of Canada it's easy to forget fresh fruits, vegetables, and salads and substitute more cooked and comfort foods. This warming winter salad provides plenty of fibre and carotenoids while adding some good natural fats from the avocado and pecans for warmth. The hot sauce provides warmth, too!

1 Tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil
4 dashes hot sauce, or to taste
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt, or to taste
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 grapefruits, peeled and sectioned
3 navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
1 large ripe avocado
1/4 cup (60 ml) coarsely chopped pecans, toasted

In a large serving bowl, whisk together oil, hot sauce, and salt. Add onion and toss to combine. Top with grapefruit and orange sections, cover, and refrigerate

Just before serving, peel and slice avocado. Add to chilled salad along with pecans, and toss gently to combine. Serves eight.
